Is there any difference between the murder of Christians by Radical Islam in the ME, and the Murder of the Unborn through the act of Abortion everywhere else in the world?
I ask this question, not looking for an answer, but for many to ponder it. With the Prayers for Peace in the ME and the “rage” some have shown about praying for peace with Muslims, Jews and Orthodox with Pope Francis, I know this question is extremely important for everyone to ponder.
If I pass a law, stating, I can kill you because you are Christian. What makes it any different from, I can kill you because you are not born yet…. It stems from the same sin. That being murder.
2258 “Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being.”56
I understand that the most innocent are the closet to our Lord and the unborn are most definitely them. I truly believe the womb of a woman, is the extension of the Hands of God, until He gives His “gift”, to learn of Him, to do His will in this world. Until they return to Him again.
Where I am going here is with so many up in arms willing to move what they can, to kill for the sake of ending Radical Islam killing others, but wouldn’t lift a PEN to outlaw and end the mass murder through abortion in their own nation, that has taken millions more children, than all wars through history, by those not only who share OUR faith, but all faiths….
We become SO enraged at THEM, we can’t see that we are no different from THEM…
We were ALL created in the Image of God. When that “Image” becomes tarnished, we are still the same…tarnished.
